Neon Telephone-Appreciation Thread

I can't get enough of "Neon Telephone" lately.It's a really catchy song and the song changes dramatically towards the end.I wish it kept going and it didnt fade out.I am reffering the 1985 version that surfaced a few years ago.

Anyone list this song highly in their favorites list?

I do, it's great song, very melodic and upbeat yet it is about loneliness "Come on baby pick up the phone, tell your baby Prince that he ain't alone, I just need some of yo sweet sweet loving"

.

Gee its dark in here, Neon Telephone - I think he wrote it for Three O'clock some act he had on Paisley Park records, that was 87, but you this version is a Parade era out take.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

Maybe she'll call me...Neon Telephone.

Maybe she won't...maybe she won't.

And if she don't...

I need some of your sweet sweet...

Oooh...hoo...oooh...hooo

How come you never call?

What...? You think you too good or something?

Good god!

I love how seeing the Neon telephone in Under the Cherry Moon, just opens up a backstory via this song.

and the ending (There must be a long version)

Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
